A Trip to Linden Hill Gardens

One day this week my gardening friend and I took a trip
to Ottsville PA to visit a wonderful nursery—want to see
some photos?  

It’s a good thing we wore good walking shoes because we
were immersed in a vast meadow of yellow flowers when we
stepped away from the car:

vast meadow!

vast meadow!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

No, just kidding–that’s a closeup of —–

I’m trying to be as clever as the owner of the nursery,
Jerry Fritz Garden Design. The presentation of the plants for
sale are as much fun as the plants themselves.   It’s not just plants
on tables but cute shabby chic arrangements that you can
do in your own garden—-old milk cans, small weathered
doors for table tops, nice rocky paths, and shady allées.
We had fun meandering—

Wait a minute—what are those things?  Chickens in front
of a hen house?

That’s the kind of surprise in store for you at Linden Hill.
You’ll see specialty offerings–you just about have to take
one home.

After we left Linden Hill, can you believe it?  We stopped at a local
yard sale and bought———–a huge bin of old buttons!  You can’t
believe it, right?  Neither could we!

To make it more believable, we stopped for ice cream on the way home . . .

    What a fun visit! That millet looks like a fun thing to grow. Did you buy anything for your own garden?
